2:00am: We slept. We slept. We slept.
Not great sleep, but we slept.
We slept a little Thursday afternoon too.
And we woke up after midnight and took the dogs outside,
and now we are all back chillin’ in the Home Office.
The dogs are sleeping in their beds
and we are catching up on yesterday’s Blog Post and starting this one.

NOTE: We didn’t pay a lot of attention to the Blog this weekend. Still working on this Blog Post and on last week’s Tues-Thurs Blog Post on early Monday morning….

Important Life Lessons (ripped from “Twisting Suburbia”:

  • be kind to everyone you meet.
  •  there is no such thing as a stranger, just “friends you haven’t yet met.”
  •  the importance of family (both of blood and of heart”)
  •  the value of shared grief (grief shared is grief halved)
  •  and the value of shared joy (joy shared is joy doubled)
  •  the importance of keeping a secret
  •  and the destructive power of gossip
  •  when to speak up
  •  and when to keep quiet
  •  to respect others – that I didn’t have to agree with them, but that everyone is entitled to their own opinion

And he can’t even wear it right. COMPLETE BULLSH*T.

We are FAILING in the middle of the First Wave!

From Yale Epidemiologist Jonathan Smith:
“As an infectious disease epidemiologist, at this point I feel morally obligated to provide some information on what we are seeing from a transmission dynamic perspective and how they apply to the social distancing measures. Like any good scientist I have noticed two things that are either not being articulated or not present in the “literature” of social media. I have also relied on my much smarter infectious disease epidemiologist friends for peer review of this post; any edits are from that peer review.
Specifically, I want to make two aspects of these measures very clear and unambiguous.
First, we are in the beginning of this epidemic’s trajectory. That means even with these distancing measures we will see cases and deaths continue to rise globally, nationally, and in our own communities in the coming weeks. This may lead some people to think that the social distancing measures are not working. They are. They may feel futile. They aren’t. You will feel discouraged. You should. This is normal in chaos. But this is normal epidemic trajectory. Stay calm. This enemy that we are facing is very good at what it does; we are not failing. We need everyone to hold the line as the epidemic inevitably gets worse. This is not my opinion; this is the unforgiving math of epidemics for which I and my colleagues have dedicated our lives to understanding with great nuance, and this disease is no exception. I want to help the community brace for this impact. Stay strong and with solidarity knowing with absolute certainty that what you are doing is saving lives, even as people begin getting sick and dying. You may feel like giving in. Don’t.
Second, although social distancing measures have been (at least temporarily) well-received, there is an obvious-but-overlooked phenomenon when considering groups (i.e. families) in transmission dynamics. While social distancing decreases contact with members of society, it typically increases your contacts with family members /
very close friends. This small and obvious fact has surprisingly profound implications on disease transmission dynamics. Study after study demonstrates that even if there is only a little bit of connection between groups (i.e. social dinners, playdates/playgrounds, etc.), the epidemic isn’t much different than if there was no measure in place. The same underlying fundamentals of disease transmission apply, and the result is that the community is left with all of the social and economic disruption but very little public health benefit. You should perceive your entire family to function as a single individual unit; if one person puts themselves at risk, everyone in the unit is at risk. Seemingly small social chains get large and complex with alarming geometric speed. If your son visits his girlfriend, and you later sneak over for coffee with a neighbor, your neighbor is now connected to the infected office worker that your son’s girlfriend’s mother shook hands with. This sounds silly, it’s not. This is not a joke or a hypothetical. We as epidemiologists see it borne out in the data time and time again and no one listens. Conversely, any break in that chain breaks disease transmission along that whole chain.
In contrast to hand-washing and other personal measures, social distancing measures are not about individuals, they are about societies working in unison. These measures also take a long time to see the results. It is hard (even for me) to conceptualize how on a population level, ‘one quick little get together’ can undermine the entire framework of a public health intervention, but it does. I promise you it does. I promise. I promise. I promise. You can’t cheat it. People are already itching to cheat on the social distancing precautions just a “little”- a playdate, a haircut, or picking up a needless item at the store, etc. From a transmission dynamics standpoint, this very quickly recreates a highly connected social network that undermines all of the work the community has done so far. Until we get a viable vaccine this unprecedented outbreak will not be overcome in one grand, sweeping gesture, rather only by the collection of individual choices our community makes in the coming months. This virus is unforgiving to choices outside the rules. My goal in writing this is to prevent communities from getting ‘sucker-punched’ by what the epidemiological community knows will happen in the coming weeks. It will be easy to be drawn to the idea that what we are doing isn’t working and become paralyzed by fear, or to just‘cheat’ a little bit in the coming weeks. By knowing what to expect, and knowing the importance of maintaining these measures , my hope is to encourage continued community spirit, strategizing, and action to persevere in this time of uncertainty.”
— Jonathan Smith is a lecturer in Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases and Global Health at Yale University School of Public Health. His research focuses on infectious disease transmission dynamics.

Saturday, June 20, 2020 – HAPPY SUMMER SOLSTICE! 

78703902_3277191362307407_3505613304120737792_n

Saturday morning…. storm warning!
Happy Summer Solstice!

12:30am: Okay, that was good. Took the day off Friday and drove the dogs to the beach and back. Had an okay bacon cheeseburger for lunch. Didn’t take any pictures. Got hot and sweaty and uncomfortable. Came home an took another shower.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

So, we took a nice hot shower at 4:00am on Friday morning thinking that would help us fall asleep, but it didn’t, we may have slept for maybe an hour and we woke up and fed the dogs and got the newspapers. Then we loaded the dogs cages into the car and got everything ready to go before they knew what was happening. We almost called it off (because we were so tired), but instead we loaded the dogs into the car and had an adventure

AND NOW HERE’S OUR CRAZY RANT OF THE DAY:

We didn’t really enjoy our trip, and it was very stressful for the dogs and for us…..
And the hostess at the hamburger stand WASN’T WEARING HER MASK ON HER FACE!
We parked and walked the dogs to the restaurant, it was hot and the dogs were still crazy from getting there, and then she had her mask around her neck, and was talking and handling the food and credit transaction WITHOUT A MASK! We were standing outside on the curb, and the exchange happened outside but WTF?! We wore a mask and we were 20 feet away with the dogs…. and when someone from the business came out and started approaching the dogs, we asked her nicely not to pet them (and without saying it – to stay the fuck away). And then we walked back with the food and it was hot and we were really angry but not saying anything, and we were stressing very hard about it.
WE HAVE TREMENDOUS ANGER TOWARDS PEOPLE WHO AREN’T BEING 100% SAFE! AND THAT IS BECAUSE WE HAVE ELDERLY LOVED ONES WHO MIGHT DIE IF EXPOSED! AND IT ONLY TAKES ONE CARELESS EXPOSURE – THERE’S NO SECOND CHANCE! AND SOME PEOPLE ARE CARELESS, AND SOME PEOPLE COULDN’T CARE LESS. AND THERE’S A STUPIDITY AND AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF DENIAL ABOUT STUPID BEHAVIOR! YOU MIGHT DIE! YOUR FAMILY MIGHT DIE! YOUR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES AND NEIGHBORS MIGHT DIE! WE DON’T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN. And so our lunch was “just okay”, and actually it was really horrifying.

Screen Shot 2020-03-19 at 03.38.22

And to be honest, it’s the longest period of time we’ve been out of the house since the beginning of March, and the longest drive we’ve made in months, with the added pressure of managing, transporting, and protecting the dogs. It was really really stressful to begin with and then MY BIGGEST TRIGGER being exposed by someone without a mask happens right in front of me, TEN HOURS LATER AND WE ARE STILL BEYOND MAD.
And we drove home, with some real stop-and-go traffic on the 101 Freeway (the “Ventura Highway”), unloaded and took care of the dogs, took a shower, fell asleep and took a nap, woke up and fed the dogs, and worked on the Blog to work this out. And that was Friday.
It’s 1:00am Saturday morning now. We haven’t eaten dinner, but we ate some mini pretzels and a little ice cream and a few triangles of Toblerone chocolate, and we only ate half the bacon cheeseburger and fries for lunch because we just couldn’t. FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK. (and thats not even enough Fucks)

measlesquarantine

Okay, we’re going to go eat and/or sleep now we think. FUCKFUCKFUCK.
4:15am: SLEEP WON. We slept a little and just woke up and took the dogs outside.
And we didn’t even eat dinner.

NOTE: We revisited this mini-RANT on Saturday at 4:30pm and we’re still mad.

Saturday morning. Today is the day!
Trump’s Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma! MAGA!

TRUMPERS. The Cult of Trump. These stupid people worship him.
They think he’s Jesus, And a Trump Rally is everything they dream of….
Stupid people (just like them) gathered together to worship the orange turd.
And now add the CoronaVirus! And remember the virus and wearing a mask is a Democratic political hoax. SO PLEASE TRUMPERS, DON”T WEAR A MASK TODAY!

2:00pm: And we were awake and the dogs got fed and we got the newspapers.
And we were outside, and we went back to bed, and we woke up again.
And we were outside again with the dogs and we scooped the poop, and we are doing a load of laundry, and now we are updating the Saturday Blog Post.
And we are hungry and thinking about some breakfast/lunch food now.

What’s up under the desk? Such a Good Boy!

5:00pm: Okay, so we watered the new tomato plants and the Little Boy loves the hose! So he got all wet and dirty while he was having fun in the water and so we had to give him a rinse off bath and he loves being dried off, so he’s a very happy boy night now. And we were amused and had fun too.  (and love my run on sentences …. hard to care about proper grammar these days)

We still haven’t really eaten today. We had a celery stalk with peanut butter and some mini-pretzels as a snack but we need some real food right now, and then we’ll feed the dogs their supper. And they had a late breakfast and a lot of snacks already today, so they’ll be fine for a little while longer.

8:00pm: So we made some food, and ate the food, and the dogs were outside and they got fed, and we were outside again, and now we are all chillin’ in the Home Office again.

On The Menu: Breakfast for dinner again: 3 eggs over medium, bacon, quesadilla, celery&carrots, dill pickle, raspberries, and cran-raspberry-orange juice and an iced espresso to drink

“The story I’m about to share with you about Joe Biden is special — in fact, I’m fairly certain I’m the only living person left who actually witnessed it firsthand. It was about 16 years ago, and I was a young rabbi, brand-new to Delaware, on my way to lead a shiva minyan — a worship service following a death of a Jewish person. I was from California. Back then, I didn’t know Claymont, Delaware from Scranton, Pennsylvania.
A quick bit of background: When someone passes away in the Jewish faith, we observe seven days of mourning, called shiva. We gather a group of ten Jewish adults together — a minyan — to say the Mourners’ Kaddish. It usually happens in a person’s home — somewhere intimate. In this case, the deceased individual — her name was Mrs. Greenhouse, of blessed memory — had not been a person of means. She had lived in rent-controlled senior housing in a tall high-rise building off of Namaans Road. Her apartment had been too small to fit everyone into, so we conducted our worship service in the building’s communal laundry room, in the basement of the high-rise.
We assembled the ten elders together, and it was in this most humble of places that I began to lead the kaddish. Toward the end of the service, a door at the back of the laundry room opened, and who walks in but Senator Joe Biden, his head lowered, all by himself. I nearly dropped my prayer book in shock.
Senator Biden stood quietly in the back of the room for the duration of the service.
At the close of the kaddish, I walked over to him and asked the same question that must have been on everyone else’s mind: “Senator Biden — what are you doing here?”
And he said to me: “Listen, back in 1972, when I first ran for Senate, Mrs. Greenhouse gave $18 to my first campaign. Because that’s what she could afford. And every six years, when I’d run for reelection, she’d give another $18. She did it her whole life. I’m here to show my respect and gratitude.” Now, the number 18 is significant in the Jewish faith — its numbers spell out the Hebrew word chai, as in “to life, to life, l’chayim!” But it’s also a humble amount. Joe Biden knew that. And he respected that.
There were no news outlets at our service that day — no Jewish reporters or important dignitaries. Just a few elderly mourners in a basement laundry room. Joe Biden didn’t come to that service for political gain. He came to that service because he has character. He came to that service because he’s a mensch. And if we need anything right now when it comes to the leadership of our country — we need a mensch.
I know this is such a simple, small story. But I tell it to as many people as will listen to me.
Because I think that, in their heart of hearts, when people are trying to think about the decision they’ll make this year — this is the kind of story that matters.
Joe Biden is a mensch. We need a mensch.
Thanks for reading.”
— Rabbi Michael Beals of Delaware

CORONAVIRUS! Part 45 (Thursday-Friday-Saturday)

CORONAVIRUS! Part 45 (Thursday-Friday-Saturday)

Thursday, June 11, 2020 – Happy King Kamehameha Day!

ARE WE “RE-OPENING” TOO SOON? – YES WE ARE!

“between 800 and 1,000 Americans are going to die every single day.
We’re going to get another 100,000 deaths by September. So, that’s a catastrophic cost”

Oregon just halted their premature re-opening as reported cases spiked!

Many other states are seeing cases spike too. The “Memorial Day Spike” is still part of the first wave of this disease! 116000 Reported Deaths and another 100000 people could die before September!  Trump and the Federal Government aren’t even talking about it anymore. They are more than ready to let you and your family die a horrible death. Cases are spiking in South Carolina, Florida, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Kentucky, New Mexico, North Carolina, Mississippi, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Puerto Rico. Arizona is in the middle of a health emergency and ran out of hospital beds….

THERE IS STILL NO FEDERAL TESTING OR TRACKING! States are on their own.
Some health figures are not being reported correctly…. and so many people haven’t even been tested, so there really is no way of knowing how bad the spread really is!

There are still shortages, medical supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) are still not available in sufficient quantity to everyone who needs them. Now they need glass vials if there’s a vaccine. Masks, swabs, gowns, gloves, face shields, ventilators, and all kinds of other equipment. And there are also drug shortages thanks to crazy medical advice from a certain “not a doctor”, who promotes medicines that his family and friends are invested in that don’t do anything to cure the virus and in fact may fucking KILL the patient. So what else do you have to lose?

VOTE BLUE 2020 – VOTE THEM OUT AND LOCK THEM UP!

We were up very early. Very early AM.
We made some bacon and toasted 2 mini-croissants.
We took care of the dogs, they got fed.
We got the newspapers and the mail.
We went to the market and bought food.
We came home and cleaned and sanitized.
The housekeeper came today, surprise!
And we took a nap. And then we woke up.
We took the dogs outside, Hello 5:00pm.

We’re having a heatwave.
Setting heat records in Los Angeles this week.
It was HOT, like HOT-HOT-HOT all week long.
And it’s gonna be hot all next week too.

SANTA MONICA AFTER THE LOOTING – (A RANT)

WHAT A DISASTER! The news isn’t even showing how bad it was! How was this allowed to happen? Someone should be fired. The Chief of Police needs to resign! If she doesn’t resign, she should be fired. More than 180 businesses were looted and/or damaged! There was no warning for merchants and no police plan from start to finish. Total FAIL! She can try to worm her way out and explain it, but it was a total fail. Anyone who watched the looting live knows there was zero police response and it was a total tactical failure. They looted guns, jewelry, shoes, clothes, sunglasses and then set fires with impunity, while the SMPD watched. They filled their cars and drove away. And then they arrested peaceful protesters. We’ll also add that this exposes the lack of emergency preparedness in case of other events, such as an earthquake. Is there a plan for police and fire response when a big one hits? Has it been reviewed and tested? Obviously there wasn’t a plan for looting or protests… And who let the protesters walk back into the city after it was on fire with looters running wild? And why were police cars left unguarded on the streets? Again, because there was no preparation or plan. How much does each car cost? And who is going to pay for it? What happened to the weapons inside? They are posing for pictures with the burning and vandalized Sheriff’s cars by the way. Tell me one thing the SMPD did to prevent looting or vandalism?
We were posting live as it was happening.
There is no defending the Chief of Police and her total failure to protect the city. No one was killed, and that was just lucky, because it was total chaos. The looting started before 1:30pm and continued until after dark. SMPD never got control and they even failed to protect the Third Street Promenade, which they had fenced off and where they had posted units. Leaving Santa Monica Place unguarded after the looting started was just one more failure. Stores were completely looted and set on fire before the police even knew they were being robbed. Anyone watching any of the news reports or live cams knew exactly what was happening in real time, and the police should have been stationed on every corner, and the motorcycle units should have been responding instead of being parked on Montana.

FlashbackFriday – We took this pic five years ago!

3:00pm: Remember we said “burnout”, well we needed just a little time.
Very little time.
So FUCK. Is it Sunday yet?
No, it’s only Friday afternoon and we’re already saying FUCK.

We got woken up by the dogs barking more than once this morning….. FUCK.
WHEN WE GET WOKEN UP REPEATEDLY IT PUTS US IN A VERY BAD MOOD.

95968087_10158201463924326_2873284051022643200_n

6:00pm: We took an afternoon nap, and got woken up again. FUCK. FUCK. FUCK.
The mobile dog groomers came this morning and 3 of our dogs got prettied.
The gardener showed up today, so then the dogs had to be contained all day.
And the plumber came back for another visit to finish fixing the toilet.

NOTE: We cannot imagine the risk of being a “service” person, having to work regardless of health condition or concerns, and having to interface with people in their homes, who may be or are sick… and once again hats off to all the doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers in the line of fire! – and there is still no plan or leadership.

We woke up, took care of the dogs, and they got fed and we went back to bed.
Our housekeeper came today for the first time since the isolation began in March.
We have been paying her salary while she has been isolating at her home too, and cleaning the house on our own, so now the house needs a real good cleaning.
And while she is here, we are isolating in the Home Office with the dogs.

We ate the last piece of cold pizza
and we drank some orange juice and a cup of espresso.
And we took a shower.

George Floyd’s Funeral is today in Houston, Texas. RIP.
“May the Four Winds blow him safely home.”

Untitled

George Floyd RIP

And it is a media circus. Everyone wants a piece of George now.
News media that never gave a sh*t, running wild with BlackLivesMatter.
AND THAT’S A GOOD THING!
(Every network channel is carrying the funeral LIVE today!)
Because the white news media doesn’t ever cover it like this.

His death at the hands of law enforcement is going to change the world.
There are protests around the world! England, France, Germany, Hong Kong!
In Bristol, England, a crowd of protesters tore down the statue of a British Slave Trader and dumped it in the water. In Hong Kong, thousands broke curfew and came out to remember the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre aka the “June Fourth Incident”.

There are already big changes happening at the Federal, State, County and City levels!
Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon, because if they don’t they’re going to get run over. It’s time to pick a side. Corporations and politicians and celebrities better get woke.

And Trump started the day of George Floyd’s funeral by tweeting of course…..

8:00am: We are tired. We didn’t sleep much, or at all….
We have taken care of the dogs already. They were outside, and they got fed, and they were outside. And we got the newspapers. We were planning on going to the market, but we are just too tired to suit up and go shopping this morning. And the construction continues across the street, so hammering and nail guns and heavy equipment all day, everyday now…. listening to them bang right now.

And we don’t know if the gardeners are coming today, probably, but we won’t know until they show up, or not. And the gardeners did come and they worked all day.

NOTE: We were feeling “burned out” on Blog writing.
SO we didn’t update this Blog Post again until Thursday evening.

We are now at “THREE MONTHS” of forced lockdown.
CoronaVirus infections are still rising. Have you been tested? Which test?
When did you get tested? Do you have anti-bodies? Are you contagious?
IT IS CRAZY THAT THE CITY AND THE STATE AND THE COUNTRY ARE RE-OPENING!
WHAT HAPPENED TO “STOP THE SPREAD” in 15 DAYS, 30 DAYS, TWO MONTHS?

On The Menu: 3 chili and cheese soft tacos for dinner

AG Barr Needs To Be Impeached Now!

2 miles of fence around The White House
now FORT TRUMP in Washington DC

102373395_3644745085538872_2036881731059728493_o

The First Amendment of the Constitution prohibits any law abridging freedom of speech, infringing on freedom of the press, interfering with right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting petitioning for a redress of grievances. (and there’s also something about religion too)

“Article I – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” (The First Amendment)

“Trump has to show how much he loves Jesus”

Trump has turned The White House into a Fort, erecting 2 miles of fencing and calling in the National Guard, mercenaries from Blackwater, unmarked uniformed officers who say they are from the Department of Justice and are actually Texas prison guards and anyone they could get to come to Washington DC to start a civil war. Trump still wants to call in active military troops to invade United States cities and kill protesters.

103258684_10158410877312710_5234541077300239394_n

A bully hiding in a bunker using the military to bully the people who oppose him.
The police beat civilians, they beat the press, they beat the foreign press.
The police arrested and beat people exercising their First Amendment rights.

“Law and Order” Trump wants to “dominate” the public protests. He is a joke. He is a criminal. He attacked peaceful protesters for a photo op! He needs to RESIGN now.

EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE!

We watched the protests on the interweb. There was a noticeable drop-off in actual coverage of the protest, shifting to stories of poor citizens victimized by criminals recovering from looting and interviews with clergy and psychologist about BLM.
Such bullshit. The news media didn’t give a shit about BLM until everyone else did.
And some media is still shilling for law enforcement, Trump and the GOP.
FUCK YOU FOX NEWS! FUCK YOU OAN! FUCK YOU DONNY!

We also spent the day on Twitter, retweeting scenes of Police Brutality and Police Violence on peaceful protesters across the country. The images and videos of abuse and harassment are terrifying! There sure are a lot of “BAD APPLES” and there sure are a lot of cops who support them. Beatings with metal clubs and batons, shooting civilians with deadly “non-lethal” bullets and pepper balls, unconstitutional arrests, and more disgusting behavior! Even video of cops spitting on zipped protesters and other cops laughing about it, while other cops stand and watch and do nothing…
TOO MANY DO NOTHING!

And everyone has seen the video of the 75 year old white man shoved to the ground by police, knocked out and bleeding from his head, as other officers look on, walk by, fail to even check on him, and arrest other protesters and threaten the people filming.

AND THE LAPD SHOT A HOMELESS MAN IN A WHEELCHAIR
TRYING TO GET TO SAFETY IN THE FACE WITH A RUBBER BULLET!

EZwBz7KXYAIu40o

THE LAPD SHOT A HOMELESS MAN IN A WHEELCHAIR
 IN THE FACE WITH A RUBBER BULLET!

EVERYONE HAS A CAMERA NOW!
So many criminal acts by law enforcement caught on video.
And we need GPS locaters and working body cams for every cop on duty.
Because the stuff they catch on camera is only a drop in the bucket of police abuse.
A badge and gun is not a license to violate the rights of citizens.
Too many police officers are not properly educated and trained for the job.
And WAY TOO MANY are not mentally or emotionally fit to be an officer of the law.

THIS WAS CLEAR TO EVERYONE BEFORE THE PROTESTS BEGAN
BUT THE EVIDENCE OF BRUTALITY ON PROTESTERS MADE IT IMMEDIATE!
STOP POLICE BRUTALITY AND POLICE VIOLENCE NOW!
DEFUND THE POLICE! REMOVE THE MILITARY EQUIPMENT!

STOP POLICE BRUTALITY! STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM!
STOP KILLING UNARMED BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE!

We had a lot of Indian food delivered for dinner and it was delicious!
On The Menu: Chicken coconut curry, chicken tikka (boneless tandoori), bangin bharta (eggplant), aloo gobi (potato and cauliflower), lamb samosa appetizer, basmati rice, garlic naan & onion kulcha (breads), raita (yogurt), mango chutney, and a mango lassi

What did we do today? We woke up too early. And we were up for hours.
And then we went to bed and slept a little. We woke up and it was Saturday.
We tuned in to the protests across the country and it was amazing to watch.

First the Marines BAN the ‘Stars and Bars’ Confederate Flag completely this week.
And now Richmond, Virginia has finally decided to remove the monuments to Confederate Generals and institutional racism that decorate the city.
Goodbye Robert E. Lee statue! About damn time! The racist south is done now.

Good morning and FUCK.

The powers that be have decided that people must die.
GET BACK TO WORK! You might die. Your family might die.
And people are going back to church today! Good luck with that.
Las Vegas is open again. “For people who don’t understand the odds.”

Social Distancing? No.

Why is the CoronaVirus still spreading? DOH!
110000+ REPORTED DEATHS in the United States
(ONE HUNDRED TEN THOUSAND DEAD US CITIZENS)

Two cups of espresso and a piece of cold pizza later.
10:15am HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF. Today just got a lot better.

The pictures from “re-opened” Las Vegas are terrifying!
Maybe 20% are wearing masks and
 casinos protective measures are a big fail.
Attempts at “social distancing” don’t work in Las Vegas.

And these people obviously don’t understand the odds or the risk.
So in three weeks, and there will be 
new outbreaks all over the USA.

THE ROAD TO THE WHITE HOUSE painted with “Black Lives Matter”

There were THOUSANDS of people in the streets of Hollywood!

There were protests all over Los Angeles on Sunday (just like Saturday), except they were larger than ever! The Hollywood protest (tweeted by rapper YZ) grew to 20000+ people!
103304958_3728581247168414_6816200603569202247_o

The protest marchers stretched from Highland to Vine, up Vine to Yucca,
and there were more people joining from all directions! They built a small memorial in the intersection at Hollywood and Highland, marched past the Dolby Theatre, and all over Hollywood before heading for the West Hollywood Sheriff Station.

This is what we’re up against. This is who they are:
POLICE BRUTALITY AND POLICE VIOLENCE IS AN EVERYDAY REALITY!
Everyone has a camera! Everyone is watching now! 

The very definition of irony:
Police brutality directed at people peacefully protesting Police brutality.

Twitter looks like the POLICE BRUTALITY CHANNEL today.
So many incidents in so many cities of Police Violence on peaceful protester!

We need PEACE OFFICERS not police.

There was such a backlash to the use of National Guard, military, and Barr’s “DOJ Police” shadow force (secret service, park police, prison guards, border agents, FBI, DEA, ATF, and the mercenary “contractors”) that even the Generals are calling him dangerous.
All active duty military and most National Guard troops are being withdrawn.
And the police are being heavily scrutinized after the brutality witnessed by everyone.
Questions about the constitutionality of using active duty military against citizens, the “Curfews” and restricting people to their homes to prevent protests.

You cannot change them.
They are racists, homophobes, and misogynists.
It is pointless to argue with them.
Their weak minds are programmed.
It is a cult. They are not your friends.

So what has the protesting accomplished?

👉🏾Within 10 days of sustained protests:
Minneapolis bans use of choke holds.

👉🏾Charges are upgraded against Officer Chauvin, and his accomplices are arrested and charged.

👉🏾Dallas adopts a “duty to intervene” rule that requires officers to stop other cops who are engaging in inappropriate use of force.

👉🏾New Jersey’s attorney general said the state will update its use-of-force guidelines for the first time in two decades.

👉🏾In Maryland, a bipartisan work group of state lawmakers announced a police reform work group.

👉🏾Los Angeles City Council introduces motion to reduce LAPD’s $1.8 billion operating budget.

👉🏾MBTA in Boston agrees to stop using public buses to transport police officers to protests.

👉🏾Police brutality captured on cameras leads to near-immediate suspensions and firings of officers in several cities (i.e., Buffalo, Ft. Lauderdale).

👉🏾Monuments celebrating confederates are removed in cities in Virginia, Alabama, and other states.

👉🏾Street in front of the White House is renamed “Black Lives Matter Plaza.”
Military forces begin to withdraw from D.C.

Then, there’s all the other stuff that’s hard to measure:

💓The really difficult public and private conversations that are happening about race and privilege.

💓The realizations some white people are coming to about racism and the role of policing in this country.

💓The self-reflection.

💓The internal battles exploding within organizations over issues that have been simmering or ignored for a long time. Some organizations will end as a result, others will be forever changed or replaced with something stronger and fairer.

Globally:

🌎 Protests against racial inequality sparked by the police killing of George Floyd are taking place all over the world.

🌎 Rallies and memorials have been held in cities across Europe, as well as in Mexico, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand.

🌎 As the US contends with its second week of protests, issues of racism, police brutality, and oppression have been brought to light across the globe.

🌎 People all over the world understand that their own fights for human rights, for equality and fairness, will become so much more difficult to win if we are going to lose America as the place where ‘I have a dream’ is a real and universal political program,” Wolfgang Ischinger, a former German ambassador to the US, told the New Yorker.

🌎 In France, protesters marched holding signs that said “I can’t breathe” to signify both the words of Floyd, and the last words of Adama Traoré, a 24-year-old black man who was subdued by police officers and gasped the sentence before he died outside Paris in 2016.

🌎 Cities across Europe have come together after the death of George Floyd:

✊🏽 In Amsterdam, an estimated 10,000 people filled the Dam square on Monday, holding signs and shouting popular chants like “Black lives matter,” and “No justice, no peace.”

✊🏽 In Germany, people gathered in multiple locations throughout Berlin to demand justice for Floyd and fight against police brutality.

✊🏾 A mural dedicated to Floyd was also spray-painted on a stretch of wall in Berlin that once divided the German capital during the Cold War.

✊🏿 In Ireland, protesters held a peaceful demonstration outside of Belfast City Hall, and others gathered outside of the US embassy in Dublin.

✊🏿In Italy, protesters gathered and marched with signs that said “Stop killing black people,” “Say his name,” and “We will not be silent.”

✊🏾 In Spain, people gathered to march and hold up signs throughout Barcelona and Madrid.

✊🏾 In Athens, Greece, protesters took to the streets to collectively hold up a sign that read “I can’t breathe.”

✊🏾 In Brussels, protesters were seen sitting in a peaceful demonstration in front of an opera house in the center of the city.

✊🏾In Denmark, protesters were heard chanting “No justice, no peace!” throughout the streets of Copenhagen, while others gathered outside the US embassy.

✊🏾 In Canada, protesters were also grieving for Regis Korchinski-Paquet, a 29-year-old black woman who died on Wednesday after falling from her balcony during a police investigation at her building.

✊🏾 And in New Zealand, roughly 2,000 people marched to the US embassy in Auckland, chanting and carrying signs demanding justice.

💐 Memorials have been built for Floyd around the world, too. In Mexico City, portraits of him were hung outside the US embassy with roses, candles, and signs.

💐 In Poland, candles and flowers were laid out next to photos of Floyd outside the US consulate.

💐 And in Syria, two artists created a mural depicting Floyd in the northwestern town of Binnish, “on a wall destroyed by military planes.”

Before the assassination of George Floyd some of you were able to say whatever the hell you wanted and the world didn’t say anything to you…

THERE HAS BEEN A SHIFT, AN AWAKENING…MANY OF YOU ARE BEING EXPOSED FOR WHO YOU REALLY ARE. #readthatagain

Don’t wake up tomorrow on the wrong side of this issue. Its not to late to SAY,

“Maybe I need to look at this from a different perspective.”

“Maybe I don’t know what its like to be black in America…”

“Maybe, just maybe, I have been taught wrong.”

There is still so much work to be done. It’s been a really dark, raw week. This could still end badly. But all we can do is keep doing the work.

Keep protesting.

WE ARE NOT TRYING TO START A RACE WAR; WE ARE PROTESTING TO END IT,
PEACEFULLY.

How beautiful is that?

ALL LIVES CANNOT MATTER UNTIL YOU INCLUDE BLACK LIVES.

YOU CANNOT SAY ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’ WHEN YOU DO NOTHING TO STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM & POLICE BRUTALITY.

YOU CANNOT SAY ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’ WHEN BLACK PEOPLE ARE DYING AND ALL YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT IS THE LOOTING.

YOU CANNOT SAY ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’ WHEN YOU ALLOW CHILDREN TO BE CAGED, VETERANS TO GO HOMELESS, AND POOR FAMILIES TO GO HUNGRY & LOSE THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE.

DO ALL LIVES MATTER? YES. BUT RIGHT NOW, ONLY BLACK LIVES ARE BEING TARGETED, JAILED, AND KILLED EN MASSE- SO THAT’S WHO WE’RE FOCUSING ON.

🖤🖤🖤BLACK LIVES MATTER🖤🖤🖤

IF YOU CAN’T SEE THIS, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.

A Message from Marvel Comics: (copied from Kenny Boyle)

X-Men is about civil rights. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get X-Men.

Black Panther is about civil rights. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get Black Panther.

Captain America literally fought Nazis. He is the embodiment of fighting the alt-right. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get Captain America.

The Empire in Star Wars is facist. The Rebel alliance are Anti-Facist. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get Star Wars.

The Punisher isn’t meant to be a role model for police or armed forces. So much so that the writers of The Punisher made him actively speak out against it in a comic. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get The Punisher.

Deadpool is queer. He’s pansexual. Fact. If you didn’t get that you didn’t get Deadpool.

Star Trek is about equality for all genders, races and sexualities. As early as the mid-60s it was taking a pro-choice stance and defending women’s right to choose. One of its clearest themes is accepting different cultures and appearances and working together for peace. (It’s also anti-capitalist and pro-vegan). If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get Star Trek.

Superman and Supergirl (and a whole host of other superheroes) are immigrants. The stance of those comics is pro-immigration and pro-equality and acceptance. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get Superman or Supergirl.

Stan Lee said “Racism and bigotry are among the deadliest social ills plaguing the world today.” If you’re bigoted or racist, you didn’t get any of the characters Stan Lee created.

The stories we grew up with all taught us to value other people and cultures and to treasure the differences between us. Only villains were xenophobic, or sexist, or racist, or totalitarian. I can’t understand how anyone can have missed that.

If you’re upset that there’s a black Spider-Man, or a black Captain America, or a female Thor, or that Ms Marvel is Muslim, or that Captain Marvel was pro-feminism, or any of the other things right wing “fans” say is “stealing their childhood” – you never got it in the first place. The things you claim are now “pandering to the lefties” were never on your side to begin with.

If you consider yourself a fan of these things, but you still think the LGBTQ+ community is too “in your face”, or have a problem with Black Lives Matter, or want to “take the country back from immigrants”, then you’re not really a fan at all.

Geek culture isn’t suddenly left wing… it always was. You just grew up to be intolerant. You became the villain in the stories you used to love.

BLACKOUT TUESDAY TODAY!

WARNING: I’m going to talk politics, civil rights, racism, police brutality, abuse of power, abuse of power under color of authority, murder, First Amendment, and personal freedom in this post. If you don’t like it. Don’t read it.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

The First Amendment of the Constitution prohibits any law abridging freedom of speech, infringing on freedom of the press, interfering with right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting petitioning for a redress of grievances. (and there’s also something about religion too)

“Article I – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” (The First Amendment)

Barack Obama’s Second Inauguration



UPDATED: Did you hear what happened in Boston?
In Boston, during a verbal dispute, an unarmed teenage boy was forcefully hit in the head with the butt of a weapon by local law enforcement.
Word of the incident spread quickly, and a large number of locals gathered in the street where the incident had happened to protest almost immediately.
As the crowd grew, angry protesters shouted slogans; some business owners, fearing property damage, shut their doors. The local authorities called for uniformed backup; backup came, well-armed.
The assembly was deemed “unlawful,” and the crowd was ordered to disperse. The protesters began to throw dirt clods in response.
In response, multiple uniformed law enforcers fired on the crowd. The first protester to die was a black man and the authorities justified the shooting by claiming that they “feared for their lives.”
Scroll down to read the most intense part…





boston-massacre

THE BOSTON MASSACRE 1770

The above events happened in the year 1770, the authorities were British soldiers, the protest would later be called the Boston Massacre, and the first protester killed in that conflict was Crispus Attucks, a black man considered by many to be a heroic American patriot and the first casualty of the American Revolution.
If, while reading this story, you found yourself siding with the authorities and thinking that the protesters should have dispersed when ordered, and/or that the protesters armed with dirt and sticks deserved to be met with deadly force by armed law enforcement, be aware that you chose the side of the tyrant King George III, not the American patriots.
Ponder that.

WTF? June 1. 2020 at the Lincoln Memorial WTF?

This is what we’re up against. This is who they are:
POLICE BRUTALITY AND POLICE VIOLENCE IS AN EVERYDAY REALITY!
Everyone has a camera! Everyone is watching now! 

Austin police have killed a young man by shooting him in the head with bird shot rounds wrapped in cloth, and continued to shoot the medics carrying his body. They shot a known pregnant woman in the stomach, then stormed and abducted her from a medic tent. They maced young children during a peaceful daytime protest.

Detroit police have brutally beaten, tear gassed and arrested my friends peacefully protesting. A curfew is set from 8pm to 5am city wide.

Rockford police dragged people from their cars and beat them last night.

Minneapolis police shot at people filming them on their own balconies.
Los Angeles Sheriffs also shot at people filming them from their homes.

An NYPD officer called a woman a “fucking bitch” and threw her on the ground. She went into a seizure and had to go to the emergency room. Then more New York cops rammed into crowds of protesters with their cars.

An Atlanta couple last night had their tires slashed, windows broken, and were dragged out of their car and tazed.

Chicago police announced a curfew and then raised the bridges out of downtown. Demonstrators were trapped and at the utter mercy of CPD roundups. A police supervisor ordered on the radio, “Gas ’em all.” Over 1,000 people have been arrested.

Everywhere, journalists are being indiscriminately targeted and arrested. A Minneapolis photojournalist is blinded permanently in one eye after being hit by a less lethal round.

They’ve maced children. They’ve torn off a woman’s hijab. They’re turning off their body cameras and hiding their badge numbers.

This is just what’s been documented. Imagine what hasn’t been.

The true nature of American policing has been revealed for the world to see. I have never seen brutality on such a massive scale. They don’t care if you’re peaceful. They don’t care if they’re on camera.

Black and brown youth are the leaders on the ground. They are the leaders of our future. Black and brown youth are the people who are bleeding, getting beaten, and being thrown into jail. This is trauma that will last their whole lives.

To the bail funds. To the phone lines to demand release. We have to protect our people.

If you’re going out there again please, and I beg you, be safe.

Long Beach, California

NOTE: The camera angle makes it look like he’s pointing at the little girl, he’s actually threatening innocent protesters. We wouldn’t want you to think the Long Beach Police would shoot a small child.



Your black friend is trying to be ok.
Your Black friend in the past 30 days has watched a Black man get shot dead while jogging (Ahmaud Arbery), a Black woman get shot dead while sleeping (Breona Taylor), and the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. Your Black friend has also listened to the President of the United States use segregationist words as a veiled threat.
Your Black friend is trying to be ok.
Please don’t ask us about the looting.
Please don’t chastise us about the rioting.
Please don’t tell us that all lives matter.
Please don’t minimize our fear.
Please don’t bring up Black on Black crime.
Please don’t ask “What about Chicago?”
Please don’t say “if you’d just act like (A Wildly Successful Black Person… Usually Oprah, Obama, Colin Powell, Denzel or Will Smith)”. Please don’t judge us
Your Black friend is trying to be ok.
Listen to your Black friend.
Empathize with your Black friend.
Support your Black friend.
Pray for your Black friend.
Just let your Black friend know you really care.
Your Black friend will remember who truly had their back during this difficult time. They will remember who was more concerned about a looted Target. They will remember you posting a thinly veiled and racially offensive meme. They will remember you calling looters “Savages”. They will remember your silence about their Black life and the Black Lives of others.
It’s real easy.

Do whatever you can to help your Black friend out because your Black friend is trying to be ok…..

DO YOU HAVE A BLACK FRIEND? DO YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE BLACK FRIEND?

Updated June 4, 2020:

One of the men accused of murdering unarmed black man Ahmaud Arbery in the US state of Georgia used a racial slur after shooting him, a court has heard. A Georgia state investigator said Travis McMichael used the slur and an expletive as Mr Arbery lay on the ground. Mr Arbery was jogging when he was chased down by Mr McMichael and his father in Brunswick in February. The case caused widespread outrage after footage was leaked online. Travis and Gregory McMichael are facing murder charges. Another man, William Bryan, faces charges of murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.

UPDATED Friday, June 19, 2020 

It’s no accident that:

You learned about Helen Keller instead of W.E.B. DuBois

You learned about the Watts and L.A. Riots, but not Tulsa or Wilmington.

You learned that George Washington’s dentures were made from wood, rather than the teeth from slaves.

You learned about black ghettos, but not about Black Wall Street.

You learned about the New Deal, but not “red lining.”

You learned about Tommie Smith’s fist in the air at the 1968 Olympics, but not that he was sent home the next day and stripped of his medals.

You learned about “black crime,” but white criminals were never lumped together and discussed in terms of their race.

You learned about “states rights” as the cause of the Civil War, but not that slavery was mentioned 80 times in the articles of secession.

Privilege is having history rewritten so that you don’t have to acknowledge uncomfortable facts.

Racism is perpetuated by people who refuse to learn or acknowledge this reality.

You have a choice.

Los Angeles County remain under CURFEW from 6:00pm – 6:00am
Other areas have curfews at 1:00pm and 4:00pm today (like Santa Monica)

“Don’t have to be ashamed of the car I drive
I’m just glad to be here happy to be alive”
– The Traveling Wilburys

BlackLivesMatters cancelled a planned protest in the Hollywood area, but there are protests happening in other locations around town and in Southern California.

We woke up and fed the dogs. And we went outside a few times.
And we got the newspapers, the mail, and the morning deliveries.
And we took a shower. And we cleaned the bathtub…. for a bath later.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

We ate a couple English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam
and drank two cups of espresso with MochaMix. It’s around 2:00pm already.

FUCKERY OF THE DAY:
We tried to get a rescheduled phone appointment with our Doctor who cancelled on us yesterday… actually they called us again, and they gave us a phone appointment with a different Doctor, who we have never seen or even met, and he tried to call us from a blocked private number, so it went to voicemail, and we didn’t get a call.
So now we are waiting for the appointment people to call us back so we can reschedule the call we missed because they didn’t tell us the Doctor would be calling from his home.
And we changed the setting on our phone, pretty much guaranteeing we’ll get called from idiots who can’t figure out an area code or keypad.

And the construction continues…. hammering, nail guns, heavy equipment, backup alarms (BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP) and a lot of yelling in Spanish.

AND THEN THIS HAPPENED
and FUCKERY OF THE DAY WENT TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL!

Protesters at the White House were tear-gassed, shot with rubber bullets, and beaten by Park Police and Uniformed Secret Service with help from the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police without warning so Trump could make an insane fascist speech and “dominate the streets” for a ridiculous Photo Op holding a bible upside-down at the church across the street.

TRUMP WILL VIOLATE YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS FOR A PHOTO OP!
(ps. You’re holding the Bible upside down Donny)

Hitler and Twitler, the Twitter Troll

Why did the chicken cross the road?
To trespass on church property, for a publicity stunt.

TRUMP CREATED AN INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT WHEN PARK POLICE ATTACKED THE AUSTRALIAN PRESS! A news crew from Australia was attacked without cause like other members of the media and the peaceful protesters they were reporting on so Trump could have a Photo Op! This is a clear violation of United States civil rights and the First Amendment. He also used the Church and the Bible for partisan politics.

78133129_10156844627345583_2750908793398231040_n

Some Police Departments DID NOT get the message.

We have seen horrible pictures of severe injuries to peaceful protesters caused by rubber bullets, pepper balls, and tear gas canisters, which we don’t want to share here. And  WHY DO ALL THESE POLICE DEPARTMENTS HAVE MILITARY ASSAULT UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT AND ENDLESS ROUNDS OF TEARGAS TO USE ON PEOPLE WHEN SCHOOLS AND HOSPITALS DON’T HAVE ENOUGH SUPPLIES OR PPE? 

And there was a protest in Hollywood and one in Van Nuys in the San Fernando Valley, even though they were supposed to be cancelled…. and so there was LOOTING in Hollywood and Van Nuys too. The Los Angeles Police Department adjusted their tactics and arrested a lot of the looters, along with any protester out after curfew. There was a lot of damage, and a couple fires, but after five days they finally figured out how to close the streets to trap them. But they still caused a lot of damage and loss today.

They’re looting the Gower Gulch Rite Aid in Hollywood on TV!
Cops arrived fast, just the organized gang folks got stuff.
Really funny when the cops show up and there are people coming out the door.

Don’t be inside when the cops arrive. Looters got arrested at last! The police were able to catch people inside businesses and they were ready to go after them Monday, instead of letting them run wild and destroy with impunity.

Suspects in Custody after TWO High Speed Pursuits Tonight!

LAPD is tracking and chasing down looters – second pursuit tonight!
They are trapping the looters, stopping them in their cars, searching them for stolen property, making arrests and impounding their vehicles.
They are also arresting anyone on the streets.

Looters and Their Vehicles in LAPD Custody in Hollywood!

How long can they hold this country under Curfew?
The protests will continue and will increase in size and frequency!
The anger only escalates as Trump incites violence and chaos in our streets.
ATTACKING PROTESTERS WILL NOT DE-ESCALATE THE ANGER!

White Supremacists and Outside Instigators have been identified within the protests, and bad elements are using the events as cover for their criminal behavior. There are also people questioning whether piles of bricks are being placed to provide ammo so the authorities can move in on protesters and label them as violent.

‘Matthew Lee Rupert, 28, of Galesburg, Illinois, was taken into custody on Monday, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office. He’s been charged with civil disorder, possession of unregistered explosives, and participating in and organizing riots….The federal complaint against Rupert cites videos that he live-streamed on Facebook in which he brags about renting hotel rooms in Minneapolis and rioting. In one video cited in the complaint, Rupert is allegedly seen handing out explosives and encouraging protesters to throw them at police.” – VICE.COM

AND PEOPLE ARE STILL SICK! AND THEY ARE NOT SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL!

CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC!
Will there be a SPIKE after the protests? OF COURSE!
No Social Distancing! So many people without masks in close contact!
Police and protesters exposing each other, confined prisoners held for arrest, police lined up next to each other…. THEY ARE ALL GOING TO BE SICK IN 2-14 DAYS!
Cases were already increasing with the premature “re-opening”, and now this.

As of Tuesday June 2, 2020:
54900+ Reported Cases and 2350+ Reported Deaths in Los Angeles County

PUBLIC STATEMENT FROM “ANTIFA”
IN RESPONSE TO THE THREATS ISSUED BY
UNITED STATES PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP

Dear Mr. Trump:
Let us be perfectly clear:
“Antifa” isn’t an organization.
There’s no membership, no meetings, no dues, no rules, no leaders, no structure. It is, literally, an idea and nothing more.
Even the claim of this author to represent “Antifa” is one made unilaterally for the purposes of this communication and nothing more;
there is no governing body nor trademark owner to dispute the author’s right to represent “AntiFa.”
“Antifa” is a neologism constructed from a contraction of the phrase “anti-fascist.”
The truth is, there’s no such thing as being “anti-Fascist.”
Either you are a decent human being with a conscience, or you are a fascist.
The ostensible president of the United States has, today, openly declared that he is a fascist, and that he intends to turn the military power of the United States into a fascist tool.
Now there is no question,
and we can stop pretending that this man represents anything but the worst in humanity, which his supporters embody. And that is the only effect his words will have.
It will likely be no problem for LEO to identify the author of this document, who also has maintained the “AntiFa” page on Facebook since founding it in 2017.
The author of this document is unconcerned with that inevitability because neither that author, nor this document, has been involved in a crime of any sort in any way.
But, since both the “president” and the media insist on acting as though “AntiFa” is this big, scary organization, the author supposes it’s time for “AntiFa” to make a statement.

Thus:
“AntiFa supports and defends the right of all people to live free from oppressive abuse of power, whether that power is unjustly derived from wealth, status as an employer, or political popularity. Particularly, AntiFa defends and supports the right of oppressed and marginalized people to protest, march, and engage in civil disobedience in pursuit of justice. While it is never our intent to engage in violent or destructive behavior, we cannot and will not take responsibility for telling people how they are allowed to be righteously outraged. We prefer and encourage non-violent action. We also understand that some people just aren’t feeling that nice anymore. Their feelings are entirely justified, and it is neither our role nor our privilege to tell them otherwise.
Mass civil disobedience is what happens when people say they’re hurting and whoever’s hurting them refuses to stop. Stop hurting them. Fix your broken systems.
Get real and meaningful psychological evaluations and background checks – police in some nations have to pass a more stringent test to carry pepper spray than any police department in the US, or the US military, have in place. As a direct and possibly deliberate consequence, our military and paramilitary personnel simply cannot be assumed to be fighting in the interests of the people of this country.
We’ve all seen the photos. This destruction and burning and looting is largely the behavior of outsiders; white people taking advantage of the situation both to enrich themselves by looting under cover of the protests, and to provide excuses for uncontrolled fascist elements within our military and police forces as plausible cover for killing more black, brown, and poor people without fear of sanction.
The so-called “accellerationists” who have committed to ensuring that, any time a marginalized community stands up and demands justice, construct a narrative of criminality and destruction that white bigots and affluent oligarchs who benefit from our broken system to validate their bigotry and injustice retroactively.
They are successful in this for two reasons: because people like you are easily manipulated in your banal, self-serving ignorance, and because people like you are more than happy to passive-aggressively reap the benefits of pretending to believe this destruction is the act of the oppressed.
This game has gone on for decades on an endless loop since the very dawn of the civil rights era, and we the people are saying ‘no more.’”
And that, “President” Trump, is your solution. No more.
Get the dirt out of your law enforcement and your military.
Get the dirt out of your government and administration.
Ideally, resign now and take your VP and cabinet with you; Nancy Pelosi isn’t a great deal of improvement, but she’ll only be president for a few months.
You can’t arrest 100 million of us, sir, and you would be well-advised not to try.
If you think that targeting and “making an example of” the author of this document will get you anywhere, you may rest assured that this author is more than prepared to allow his real name to be used as a rallying cry for justice and civil disobedience from coast to coast.
It is time for you and everyone who thinks like you to understand that whether black, red, brown, white, or any other color, Americans are done living in a nation of empty platitudes and broken promises.
Traditionally, this type of document is accompanied by a list of “demands.”
Here are our demands:
-Universal single payer health care, without regard for citizenship status.
-Universal basic income WITH a federal job guarantee, under which the federal government becomes the “employer of last resort.” Involuntary unemployment is a function of profiteering by fascist capitalist oligarchs who are willing to sacrifice the lives of others for their own enrichment. It must end.
-The abolition of “right to work laws” which do exactly the opposite of ensuring anyone’s right to work.
-Publicly funded higher education.
-Robust and effective social welfare programs to include child care, education, employment training and counseling, parenting skills training, and life skills training including fiscal education.
-A requirement that functional proficiency in media, political, and economic literacy be demonstrated to graduate high school.
-The creation of a publicly funded non-partisan media source to serve as the primary source of government information, to be overseen and managed day to day by a coalition of well-known communicators, political scientists, and other experts in propaganda to strip ALL bias from official information before it is broadcast.
-Federal charges of treason filed against anyone willfully and knowingly attempting to minimize public perception of the impact and risks of the coronavirus.
-Reform of whistleblower laws to ensure they have teeth, and particularly to ensure that a whistleblower, acting in good faith, is not identified to the public, ever.
In the end, Mr. “President,” the simple reality is that “AntiFa” isn’t a thing.
You can’t end it, you can’t arrest it, and you can’t silence it.
Nor, in any decent nation, would the attempt even be made.
“Antifa” means “Anti-Fascism.” The only position that opposes that is fascism. In the end, there is no “organization” that you can “declare terrorists.” You, sir, and yours, are the terrorists, and your victims are done putting up with it. America is not, in spite of having an openly admitted fascist as “president,” a fascist nation.
We’ve had wars about this.
The fascists are 0-2.
Please, Mr. “President” – let’s not try to make it 0-3? Because it will never, ever be 1-2, and none of us wants to see the death toll from your attempt to make it so.
Best Regards, “AntiFa.”

George Floyd is dead. He was murdered on video.
Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin killed him.
Chauvin was aided in this killing by three other Police Officers.

100646466_10163695445965241_3927334467877732352_n

All four were fired as soon as the footage aired. After three days of protests and three nights of rioting in Minneapolis, Chauvin was finally arrested and charged with 3rd degree Murder and Manslaughter. The other officers have not been arrested yet.

A black CNN reporter and his crew were arrested by Minneapolis Police today.
This was a TARGETED ARREST In a clear violation of the FIRST AMENDMENT!

There are reports that an “Agent Provocateur” may have been involved in smashing windows at the AutoZone and starting the vandalism. And he may have been a Minneapolis Police Office! There are pictures and posts and tweets, so go find the truth.

And Trump Tweeted. Rage tweeting on drugs. He has nothing positive to contribute, just more lies, slander, and self-serving propaganda (while 101000+ US Citizens have died).
Only today, he quoted another WHITE SUPREMACIST RACIST and threatened violence.

100593722_4627597343917874_7698166228774289408_n

Today’s Disgraceful Trump Tweet:
“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” tweeted Trump early Friday morning. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” 

100088646_137004467962562_3909855832178688000_n

And Taylor Swift tweeted! And so did a lot of other angry people.

101956344_895265940900942_378877516359663616_n

NOTE: Well, we started watching the protest at about 4:00pm PST and didn’t eat dinner until after midnight because there was so much anger exploding all over the USA to see.

“The Pinch” in Downtown Los Angeles 5-29-2020

There was a protest in DTLA last night that turned into a six hour riot and looting party. You might not know it, because most of the network TV stations didn’t cover it live on TV, instead to get the real news you had to go online and search. And there were “protests” in many cities besides Minneapolis last night.

Escaping the LAPD containment through a Construction Site 5-29-2020

Okay kids, the event started before the sunset and went on until long after midnight…. yes there was some reporting and live coverage on network but really? There were 500 LAPD officers in DTLA and it was a tactical clusterf*ck. Six hours after the looting began, there were still cars and Metro buses driving through the chaos. People were running into buildings and through buildings to avoid the police. By the time the cops reponded to a location being looted, the crowd had already moved on. And they left their cop cars unguarded on the streets, so there was massive vandalism to numerous police units! The longer it went on the more people showed up to join in the anarchy, and there was no sense of urgency or coordinated response when the protesters moved onto the freeway early on… after two nights of rioting, why weren’t they prepared for this?
(THIS IS EXACTLY HOW THE 1992 L.A. RIOT STARTED!)

And then SATURDAY HAPPENED. (See our next Blog Post)

TRUMP’S RACIST AND DIVISIVE TWEET from April 17, 2020

A message from Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey:
“What started as largely peaceful protests for George Floyd have turned to outright looting and domestic terrorism in our region. We need you to stay home tonight….Governor Walz, at our request and in partnership with our city and Mayor Carter, has just fully mobilized the Minnesota National Guard. MPD and our fire department will be assisting tonight as part of this operation.”

Police Brutality Protest in San Francisco in 1968! (photo by Jim Marshall)

“Let the photograph be one you remember-not for it’s technique but for it’s soul. Let it become part of your life-a part of your past to help you shape your future.” – Jim Marshall

IT IS THE YEAR 2020!
IT IS TIME FOR POLICE AND PRISON REFORM!
IT IS TIME FOR POLICE TO STOP KILLING UNARMED BLACK CITIZENS!
Every Police Officer who has been accused of brutality, racism, or a civil rights violation should be FEDERALLY INVESTIGATED WITH PUBLIC OVERSIGHT and when found guilty, terminated immediately and prosecuted as necessary.
THE ENTIRE JUDICIAL SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE REFORMED TOO!
One system of justice for all.
There can’t be one for rich white people
and another for people of color and the poor.

STOP POLICE BRUTALITY! STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM!
STOP KILLING UNARMED BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE!
STOP RIOTING AND LOOTING! STOP BURNING THINGS!

“I just want to say – you know – can we all get along?
Can we, can we get along?”
– Rodney King RIP on May 1, 1992

CORONAVIRUS! Part 37 (Tues-Wed-Thurs)

Tuesday, May 26, 2020 – TravelTuesday! TikiTuesday!
NO BLOG TODAY! WE ARE TAKING THE DAY OFF!

100979684_136581881338154_1924802860856377344_n

The New York Stock Exchange RE-OPENED today.
The Greek Theatre in (City of) Los Angeles cancelled their 2020 season today.
Runyon Canyon Park in the Hollywood Hills opens tomorrow (Wednesday) –
and will probably be closed later due to overcrowding…..
Los Angeles County is “re-opening” even though the case numbers are still rising!
Beaches, parks, retail, service businesses, and restaurants are open for more deaths.

98437444_10157633321488772_6876580865275592704_n

NOTE: 100000+ DEATHS in the United States!
People are not able to self-regulate or self-isolate! Some won’t even wear a mask.
There will have to be a real nationwide quarantine, to really stop the spread….
Not 15 days, not 30 days, not a partial 60 day forced locked, because only a real “don’t leave your house for any reason” quarantine like they had in New Zealand will make a difference here in Los Angeles, or any big city in the country.

47875+ Reported Cases and 2145+ Reported Deaths in Los Angeles County!
90600+ Reported Cases and 3708+ Reported Deaths in California!
1710000+ Reported Cases and 100000+ Reported Deaths in the United States!

We were up at 4:00am with the dogs, and tried to sleep, but it wasn’t happening.
And we tried to sleep again, and finally did fall asleep after 6:00am for an hour.

58376812_2255647254749557_6808109942591979520_n

8:30am: And the dogs are fed and we’ve been outside,
and we got the newspapers, and the water guy came.
We made and ate a peanut butter and raspberry jam sandwich
on toasted challah bread and drank a cup of espresso.

WARNING! CoronaVirus “Antibody Tests” that people have been using to determine whether they’ve been infected and may have immunity, are only 50% correct!
That’s right, Half of the antibody test may be wrong! So antibody testing is ineffective.
THERE ARE STILL NOT ENOUGH TESTS AVAILABLE! And the tests have to be effective.

10:45am. Should I put on pants today?

We got the mail. And the dogs got fed.
We were outside with the dogs.
We did a load of laundry.
It was HOT today. We took a nap in the afternoon.

100814832_3698297376863468_2414257256599126016_o

11:50pm:
We ordered a pizza delivery for dinner around 9:30pm.
On The Menu: Large pepperoni and sausage pizza,
and we had a coupon for a FREE small cheese pizza (for tomorrow)

Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza Delivery from D’Amore’s for Wednesday’s Dinner

Thursday, May 28, 2020 

Watched part of the 3-part “Grant” documentary on The History Channel.
They could have done it in just two parts if they cut the commercials….
we recorded it so we could fast-forward though the advertisements.

10:30am: Good morning! We have done the dogs. They are fed, we’ve been outside a few times already. Everyone is happy and healthy today! We ate a piece of cold pizza and drank some juice and espresso for breakfast. We did some household chores and got the newspapers.

5:00pm: F*CK.
We got the mail and the deliveries. We played with the dogs. We ate more pizza for lunch. It was a nice day and we could use a nap right now. We were suppose to have a dentist appointment today, but first they cancelled all the appointments, and now they’re open, and we rescheduled for a later date. It’s time for our regularly scheduled cleaning, but we can wait a little longer.

NOTE: It may be safe, it may not be safe. Don’t trust anyone outside your isolation!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME. Don’t expose yourself if you don’t have too. ZERO CONTACT!

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts cancelled the Theatre’s 2020-21 season.
Talking Heads’ David Byrne’s “Theater of the Mind,” will reschedule its world premiere.
Actor’s Equity Union released four core principles “needed to support life and healthy theater production” on Tuesday: “The epidemic must be under control; Individuals who may be infectious can be readily identified and isolated; the way we audition, rehearse, perform and stage manage may need to change; and efforts to control COVID-19 exposure must be collaborative.”

They cancelled the Boston Marathon today for the first time in history.
But Las Vegas is going to re-open next week….
Los Angeles is re-opening and it’s going to be really ugly in two weeks.

Frankie’s Tiki Room in Las Vegas, Nevada

8:40am: Good morning!

It’s TravelTuesday and TikiTuesday!
You’re not going anywhere. RIGHT? So have a nice day.
And STAYTHEFUCKHOME! Stay healthy and alive.

The dogs are fed and we were outside and we got the newspapers.
We woke up and setup this Blog Post, and then we went back to bed.
And then we woke up again and took care of them.
And it’s Tuesday. And it looks like it’s going to be a nice day outside.

We ate a toasted egg bagel with cream cheese, some red grapes, some peanut M&Ms, and drank an espresso. The gardeners are here again working in the yard, so the dogs are napping in the other room right now.

97994162_1658713484267358_4868583315369623552_n

We made some lunch.
On The Menu: 2 Hotdogs with mustard, cheese & chopped onion; dill pickle, celery & carrots, an orange, red grapes and an iced espresso to drink.

It’s A Three Dog Night Tonight!

Hanging out with my quarantine buddies all night. They are such good doggies!
TV, interweb, and we are entertained. And we fell asleep eventually.

Wednesday, May 20, 2020 – National Rescue Dog Day!

ALOHA 🌺. Hau Oli La Hanau Braddah Israel!
Happy Birthday to Brother IZ! RIP

Okay, who’s for breakfast?

1:00pm It’s a beautiful day! Windy and warm outside. And we’ve been up for hours.
Well we woke up very early and took care of the dogs, we ate 2 hotdogs with mustard for breakfast, and then we went back to sleep for a little bit, and then we’ve been wandering around the house and office for a couple hours…. dogs got fed and we’ve been outside and they were chillin’ in the office.

No gardeners, but the construction continues across the street, and they are still framing, so it’s guys hammering, nail guns, and other woodworking noise. They’re going fast, but it still sucks. Background noise when the windows are open to enjoy the fresh air and it a beautiful day like today.

We took the dogs outside to run around and play and do some business.
And then we put them down for a nap so we could do a little cooking in the kitchen.
We made a pot of chili wit beans:

97470031_3678724315487441_2995963757403832320_o

Chili wit Beans!

2:00pm: Ate a bowl of our chili topped with cheese for lunch. And it was good.

97965846_3678934658799740_3129665204565049344_o

Life is just a bowl of chili (with cheese)

And Peanut M&Ms for “dinner”. That’s right, no real food for dinner. We didn’t eat.
We didn’t do sh*t. We hung out in the home office and with the dogs. The dogs got fed and played with. We slept a little probably, we don’t even remember right now.
We surfed the interweb with the TV on until we fell asleep and actually slept for real….
And then it was Thursday morning.

40800+ Reported Cases
and 1970+ Reported Deaths
in Los Angeles County as of Wednesday!
57 NEW DEATHS in the last 24 hours (if you’re keeping score)

Thursday, May 21, 2020 – Red Nose Day! International Burger Day!

THERE WAS A MALL SHOOTING IN GLENDALE, ARIZONA LAST NIGHT!
A guy with an assault rifle shot 3 people…. guess the quarantine is over in AZ.
And there was a “Terrorist Attack” at a military base in Texas too. WTF?

quarantine-flag-300x200

Seriously, there is a RUSH TO RE-OPEN cities, states and the country.
ARE WE READY TO RE-OPEN? IS THERE ENOUGH TESTING?
HAVE WE STOPPED THE SPREAD? HAVE WE FLATTENED THE CURVE?
15 Days? 30 Days? 60 DAYS? FORCED LOCKDOWN/QUARANTINE!
Do you know anyone who got sick with CoronaVirus?
Do you know anyone who was hospitalized with CoronaVirus?
Do you know anyone who died from CoronaVirus?

THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC IS NOT UNDER CONTROL!
GROCERY & FOOD PRICES ARE SPIKING! BIGGEST PRICE JUMP IN HISTORY!
THE COUNTRY IS NOT READY TO RE-OPEN!
There’s no testing. There’s no vaccine. People are dying everyday from this disease!
The CoronaVirus is still spreading! People are infected without knowing they are!
“Social Distancing” and Masks/Gloves are not a guarantee of immunity!

WEARING A MASK DOESN’T PROTECT YOU 100%

5:00am: We woke up too early again. Still dark outside and a little chilly too.
Checked on the dogs, who are sleeping soundly, and made a cup of espresso. Filled in some blank space in this Blog Post and now it’s ThrowbackThursday morning again.

It’s going to be HOT again this next week.
It’s beautiful outside, day and night, when it gets HOT, but during the day it’s not fun.

12:00Noon: We fell back asleep this morning, and we woke up and took care of the dogs. They got fed, and loved, and played with, and they were outside.
We ate a toasted egg bagel with cream cheese and we’ve had a couple cups of espresso.
And we took care of more stuff around the house this morning.
And we had to fix the Little Girl’s face, so she had a mini-grooming session.
And we also did a little clean-up on the Little Boy too. And they both look better now.

NOTE: We ordered a BBQ chicken combo and a BBQ sparerib combo, and instead got two chicken combos…. so NO RIBS. Too much trouble to even bother making a phone call..

“I’m a leaf on the win….”

 

Fred Willard passed over last Friday.
Rest in Peace and May the Four Winds blow him safely home.
He was so funny. And everyone loved Fred. He always made us laugh.
Jimmy Kimmel did a great tribute show for him (from home).

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, get help right away!
Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255) to reach a trained counselor and press 1 to reach the Veterans Crisis Line.
You can also chat with them online at suicidepreventionlifeline.org/chat/.

NOTE:  if you TEXT 741741 when you are feeling depressed, suicidal or anxious, a crisis worker will text you back and continue to text with you? Many people, especially younger folks, do not like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting. It’s a free service to ANYONE – teens, adults, etc. – who lives in the U.S. It’s run by The Crisis Text Line and is legit.

Trump was briefed about the Coronavirus Threat in January!
He called it a hoax, a conspiracy theory, and then ignored and lied about it!
TOTAL FAILURE! Trump fired the NSC Pandemic Team in 2018!
